BOTTOM FEEDERS (THE MORAL OF THE STORY)







Once upon a time there was a sea turtle and a wolf who became
friends. Now you might think that these are two animals who wouldn't have much
to do with each other. And you'd be right. One was a plodding, oddly-shaped
ocean dweller, while the other was a sleek predator who prowled the forests for
unwary deer. Their friendship began when the wolf was out hunting and saw the
turtle sunning himself on the beach. The turtle looked rather unappetizing, so
there was never any real thought of eating him. Nonetheless, the wolf was
curious about this curious creature. And vice versa. The two got to talking and
the turtle told the wolf about an island not too far offshore that was filled
with delicious animals just waiting to be eaten. Needless to say, the story got
the wolf's attention. A deal was quickly struck in which the turtle would ferry
the wolf to the island every day in exchange for a portion of whatever the wolf
killed. This arrangement worked out quite well. Many years went by and both
animals got fat and happy. But there came a time when the wolf decided he
didn't need the turtle anymore and could swim to the island on his own. After
all, he'd been watching the turtle make the daily journey for a long time and
it certainly didn't look very hard. But it was. Not long after the wolf jumped
into the ocean, he was quickly overcome by the relentless waves and fierce
undertow. He struggled and howled, but to no avail. The proud wolf sank to the
floor of the sea where his body was quickly engulfed by a swarm of bottom-feeding
crabs. His last thought was, "I
wonder if it's too late to work with the turtle?" The moral of the story?
Stick
with the program or be stuck with bottom-feeding crabs.
